The Yocto-Color and RGBW leds

By martinm, in New stuff and Programming, april 06,2018.

The Yocto-Color-V2 was designed in the beginning of 2016 to drive those small RGB leds that one can wire serially and address individually, the most well known ones being the Adafruit NEOPIXEL leds. Meanwhile appeared the RGBW leds, which can emit not only red, green, and blue but also white and which are, for sure, compatible with the classic RGB leds. Good news: we just published a new firmware for the Yocto-Color-V2 which drives these RGBW leds.

Do you know the commonality between the TV series Battlestar Galactica (1978) and Knight Rider (1982)? Actually, there are at least two: their creator Glen A. Larson, and this small chase effect in the Cylons visor and at the front of KITT, hence the "Larson scanner" expression. We wondered if we could do the same effect with the autonomous animations of the Yocto-Color-V2.

Adapting monitor brightness automatically

By seb, in Programming and Misc, december 08,2017.

This week, we are implementing a program suggested by one of our customers: Using the Windows API to adapt the brightness of a monitor depending on the ambient light. Most laptops already do that, but desktops don't because they don't have a light sensor. We are going to use a Yocto-Light-V3 to determine the ambient light.
